“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” — World Health Organization
In 1948, the World Health Organization defined health as more than just physical integrity. It embodies the entirety of a human being, consisting of the body, emotions, intellect, social connections, and material possessions. All these aspects are interdependent and must be given equal significance to achieve overall well-being.
Public health, as an essential field, is dedicated to safeguarding and improving the health of individuals and communities, and this is achieved through the promotion of healthy lifestyles, research on disease prevention and injury mitigation, and identification, prevention, and management of infectious diseases. The overarching goal of public health is to ensure the health and well-being of entire populations, regardless of their size or geographic location, which is a critical component of ensuring that everyone can lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
At DevInsights, we strive to provide decision-makers with the most reliable and accurate information possible. We achieve this through conducting evidence-based studies and analyzing data from various sources.
Our focus is on addressing critical public health issues such as maternal and newborn health, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. To accomplish this, we utilize modern and innovative techniques like standardized patients and observation studies to gather the most comprehensive data. We are dedicated to improving the quality, efficiency, affordability, equity, and financing of healthcare. By contributing to research and data on care delivery and financing, quality measures, and health systems change, we aim to make a meaningful impact in the field of public health.
